In this edition of the ArtTactic Podcast, Alexandra Peers, art market reporter for The Daily Beast and Vanity Fair, returns to recap the record-breaking sale of Edvard Munch’s The Scream. First, Alexandra provides us with the play-by-play of what transpired in the saleroom from the opening of the lot until it was finally hammered down approximately twenty minutes later. Then, she speculates on some of the candidates who may have purchased the masterpiece. Also, Alexandra compares the sale to another historic auction from 1990 which featured the sale of Van Gogh’s Portrait of Dr. Gachet. Lastly, Alexandra shares her initial reactions to the inaugural edition of Frieze New York.
